Moxa Therapy


Moxibustion: is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called “moxa” are burned on or very near the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences.

Moxibustion also helps during the postpartum period also called “Mother Warming” is very common.  It is performed by using burning herbs that will warm the points of the abdomen and lower back.  Mother warming is very simple to perform and can be performed either in our office or privately at your home. We like to ask for assistance from a partner or helper for a more family centered experience. Mother warming is recommended to assist with recovery after you have a baby and works to help tone the uterus, restore energy after birth and help new mothers feel rejuvenated.
